We believe data privacy is a human right, which is why Storj DCS is built on a decentralized architecture that makes data breaches a thing of the past.
Storj DCS (Decentralized Cloud Storage) automatically encrypts all files before being uploaded--your data is only in your hands and those you share it with.
Common attacks depend on breaching a central repository of access controls, compromising a credential, or gaining access to a treasure trove of data. Decentralization eliminates whole categories of attack vectors.
Storj DCS pushes access management to the client and uses macaroon-based API keys for an added layer of security. Pushing access management to the edge eliminates the need for access control lists, increasing privacy.
With access managed peer-to-peer, Storj DCS separates responsibilities for creating bearer tokens for access management from encryption to use the data. Separation of these concerns enables decoupling storage, access management, and use of data, ensuring greater privacy with greater transparency.
